Health Consciousness (First Post!)

Hello world!

I am a new member of the community and this is my first post but I have been lurking for some time.  I really love all of the great ideas floating around out there, kudos to all!

As I lurk, however, I have noticed a troubling trend.  I hope some will back me up when I say that any food community should address the issue of healthy food choices.  I understand from the community profile that most posters are from the US, where obesity is nothing less than an epidemic.  As such, I am trying to radically change my own food choices to be more health conscious, and have made it a personal mission to encourage others to join me.

That said, I have a respectful and humble request of community members.  Please do post any and every great recipe idea you have, far be it from me to judge.  However, as a nod to the need for health-conscious reform, could we put those "less than healthy" recipes behind a cut?  It will be a good reference tool for those of us trying to discipline ourselves!

While I'm at it, some great healthy food references:
